9. MUSIC: What For?, Toro y Moi
South Carolina native Chaz Bundick is Toro y Moi, a celebrated indie musician known for his "chillwave" sound. If you haven't heard the ambient sounds of Toro y Moi — which released two full albums and puts out a third, What For?, on Tuesday — it's perfect music for working, cleaning, or sexy time. If you like what you hear, you can try to catch Chaz next week (and the week after) when he performs at the Coachella music and arts festival near Palm Springs, Calif.  — Neal Broverman

8. EVENT: WonderCon Anaheim
Lovers of superheroes, science fiction, fantasy, and more descend on Anaheim, Calif., this weekend for WonderCon. It offers panels, film and TV screenings, parties, and ample opportunities to meet fellow geeks. LGBT-focused events include the panels “It’s a Queer, Queer World,” tonight at 7 and featuring Batwoman writer Marc Andreyko, Wuvable Oaf creator Ed Luce, and others, and “Queer Imagery in Animation,” set for Sunday at 3 p.m., with GLAAD’s Matt Kane and The Advocate’s Diane Anderson-Minshall among the participants. Many of the other events on the jam-packed three-day schedule promise to be LGBT-inclusive. The most popular attractions likely will be preview screenings of The Flash and Gotham as well as the new movie Batman vs. Robin, but the convention looks to offer something for the inner geek in just about everyone. It runs through Sunday at the Anaheim Convention Center.  — Trudy Ring
